  • Why the Roy Moore Accusations Terrify Me as a Wife and Mother

    This is the new reality. Any male can be accused, and has no recourse or defense.

    This is absolutely 100% true. On other threads, I've said that and some Freepers scoffed at me. If a man can be destroyed by 40 year old allegations - than no man is safe. If the Democrats are successful in stopping Roy Moore from obtaining a senate seat in a deep red state like Alabama, than they have the basic toolkit with which to destroy any future up and coming Republican that they deem a threat to their power. The sad thing is, many Republicans were quick to condemn the man in order that they might virtue signal and perhaps inoculate themselves from being falsely charged. It's all very Orwellian.

    That photo was probably taken at the bend. Anyway, not for me. Especially the see through floor. I am not a fan of heights unless I’m in an enclosed area (like an airplane or a building).

  • What ever could a Redneck do in Yankee Connecticut?

    I live in Newtown, CT - just a few miles from the Sandy Hook shooting. My wife's church is just around the corner from where it happened. Despite what you hear, it's a very nice area to live. Wonderful people and actually quite conservative as a whole - it is the urban areas along the coast that make us a blue state.

    As for Wilton, CT, it is one of the absolute safest, crime-free areas you could live in the country. It's also very expensive, as you probably realize if you researched the area. But the $70/hr consulting job will get you by just fine if you choose a reasonable home.

    I haven't read the replies yet but I bet a lot of the Freepers are going to tell you not to make the move. I've been around the country myself, Iowa, Alabama, Georgia, California, Illinois, Massachusetts and now Connecticut. I can tell you that this part of Connecticut (Fairfield County) is very affluent yet can be very woodsy and rural depending on where you choose to live. I love hiking and there are so many trails I haven't even discovered them all yet. The traffic can be pretty bad but once you learn backroads, you can avoid most of that and get around quite easily. We do have some pretty intense winter weather at times but spectacular summer and autumn weather.

    Freepmail me if you want more details.

    Amazing things are going on in the world and many Freepers have their heads buried in the sand, worrying about what MSM is saying and fretting that Jeff Sessions isn't working fast enough for them, as they sit in their armchairs not doing anything themselves. They are like two-year old children throwing tantrums on the high chair because mommy isn't working fast enough for them.

  • Ann Wedgeworth, ‘Three’s Company’ Actress, Dies at 83

    What a weird Saturday it has been. Steel grey skies with a chilly breeze as I was blowing leaves and pulling pump from the koi pond only to learn that Malcolm Young of AC/DC has died. My coffee was horrible this morning and I had to spit it out but I did fry up some eggs in butter and put them on english muffins with muenster cheese so that was good. Then I had to take a delivery o firewood and stack it all up only to learn that David Cassidy is on his deathbed. David Cassidy! He looked so young in the Partridge Family but not so much anymore. Then I started hanging some Christmas lights while ham and baked beans were getting cooked only to find out that some lady from Three’s Company died at the age of 83. 83? That’s just crazy. I could imagine the Ropers being 83 but not some young girl. So all that is left for me this evening is to light up my fireplace and pour a glass of red wine. Maybe I will smoke a pipe. It’s been a crazy day.

    Is TIME still in publication? I haven’t read that magazine since the 1990s and that was in a doctor’s office. I did subscribe to it at one time - some girls were knocking at my door back in the 1980s looking to sell magazine subscriptions to go to college. Probably a scam but they were good looking girls. I also got National Geographic for a while.

    I was a sucker in those days. Bought the entire Encyclopedia Britannica. Remember that? I think I paid maybe $800 for the entire set back around 1985. I got it for my kids who weren’t even born yet, thinking they could use it for their school days. They ended up having the internet instead. They never even cracked the set open. Ended up selling the entire set to a neighbor for like $75 around 2000.

    I cut my cable several years ago. I pretty much only stream my content now...Netflix, YouTube, AmazonPrime...

    But I listen to satellite radio more than anything else. I have a Sirius/XM subscription so I get the FoxNews feed for Hannity, Tucker, etc.

    When a snowstorm is coming, I have no worries. I have firewood, candles, a generator and lots of food. I don't have to watch the 24/7 news coverage - which probably raises blood pressure quite a bit. Instead, when I am snowed in, I listen to classical music and read some good books.

    I think most Freepers are negative all the time because they are consuming too much MSM media. They believe in instant gratification and assume that because we haven't had a flood of indictments yet, that nothing is getting done and that everything is wrong. Things that don't happen on their timeline is...unacceptable.

    I'm glad I got off that MSM treadmill.

    I noticed that the event they were at was very sparsely attended. Most of the metal folding chairs were empty! Just like Flake’s head.

    I was 8 years old when the Partridge Family debuted on TV. My sister and I watched pretty much every episode thereafter. I used to pretend I was Danny. And later, I had a crush on Susan Dey and my sister, along with millions of other girls, had a crush on David Cassidy. So that show and that music - although corny - brings back a lot of great childhood memories for me.

    This was the best Partridge Family song in my opinion...

  • Malcolm Young, Whose Guitar Riffs Helped Propel AC/DC to Fame, Dies at 64

    SamAdams76 to wastedyears
    I won't give the NYT a click as I can read about Malcolm's death on other websites.

    I pointed out on another thread that Malcolm's older brother, George, passed away just a few weeks ago. George was a founding member of the Easybeats and also, one of my favorite all-time bands Flash And The Pan. Very strange and sad to have two Young brothers to die within a month of each other.

    Was never a big fan of Malcolm's AC/DC - they rocked a bit too hard for my taste and gave me a headache! But AC/DC did have one album, "Back in Black" that resonated with me. That album came out around the end of 1980, a time when I was training for Marine Boot camp. I was getting up at 5am in the morning to go on a ten-mile run through the streets of Revere and Lynn (MA) and that was one of the cassettes that played on my Sony Walkman (remember those?). Those songs did give me a boost of energy during my runs.

    Then, during boot camp in early 1981, I spent a week on mess duty and had to report to the mess hall at 3:30am to get breakfast ready. The cooks would play that album at top volume...what a wakeup call that was!

    It will eat her alive every day and night for the rest of her miserable life!

    I believe that is 100% true. She has made the presidency her life's mission and that's unhealthy. Not just for her but for the rest of us as well. We would not be well served by such a grasping, desperate egomaniac such as Hillary Clinton.

    Who was it that said of the presidency: "The office should seek the man, the man should not seek the office"? Whoever did, those were wise words indeed. And Donald J. Trump is the man that the office desperately needed at this juncture of our history.

    I don’t want people in the military who don’t want to be there and aren’t qualified. Enough affirmative action/incompetents/trannies/fags/feminists/idiots in the military as it is. Leave the military for the qualified, who want to be there.

    I agree with you. I enlisted in the Marine Corp out of high school but it was my own choice and I was with others who chose to be there. Now there were times that we all regretted that choice! But overall, I trusted all my fellow Marines and would have fought next to them if it ever came to it - but alas, the only fighting we did was in bars.

    Would not want to be on a battlefield with draftees.

  • Tick Tock boom, Hannity tweet

    Very true. As a talk show host, I don’t expect him to “break” news but to discuss and dissect it. That’s why his “tick tock” routine is annoying, especially as it never seems to deliver. I’m content just to hear his show as it’s nice to not have another anti-Trump voice out there. So I do like his show in general. Too many commercials on the radio show but the prime time hour on Fox is usually worth listening to.
